Birthday Blessings
Wednesday, June 20, 2007
Well today was my 25th birthday. Honestly, for the last few days I've been having mixed emotions about this day. Sometimes I was excited, loving my freedom, my youngness, my successes. Other times I was depressed about getting older, being without a man, and not being as successful as my other friends. I've been a pain in the ass with some of my friends, for being so wishy washy in the last few days, for which I truly apologize for. So I'm really happy to report that today, my actual birthday, was a fabulous day.

This is the first year since I've started work that I didn't book vacation on my birthday week. Last year I was in Georgia and the year before that in the Philippines. For whatever reason I just didn't feel like booking anything at this time. Luckily, I wasn't really working today; instead I ended up in training at the Westin Hotel. I was a little antsy that we had no internet access all day, but at the same time, it felt pretty dang good to not have that distraction. No emails about work, no IMs from managers, nothing. Just me sitting there learning and enjoying the training. Now normally my trainings happen in one of our firm offices. Since this was at the Westin hotel, we got hooked up with some good food. I swear, all I did today was eat. Ate all day in training, and had a big fatty dinner with my parents/brother.

I'll have to put up another post about my other birthday celebration that took place on Saturday. It was a pirate themed BBQ, with pretty much all of my friends and cousins. I got some awesome presents this year, including bookstore gift cards, a Nintendo DS (hehe, yes I'm still a kid in some ways), Goo Goo Dolls concert tickets, panty/bra set (haha, don't ask), and other cute girly things I normally don't buy for myself.

I think the best part about my birthday this year, was the warm birthday greetings I got. Just to have a lot of my friends show up at the BBQ meant a lot to me, since this month is crazy busy with graduations, etc. Even Rob came to the BBQ, and a friend of mine came at 4, left for work, and came back after work around 10pm. Then there were all the emails/texts/phone calls I received. Seriously, I'm not pointing all of this out to be a show off. It's just that, not having Benny around this year was making me sad. To see that I'm really not alone and that all of my friends/family care about me just means so much to me. More than most of them will know.

So to all of you (you know who you are): thank you, thank you, thank you. You give me reason to believe that when God closes a door, he'll open a window; that family and friendship are invaluable; and that I am truly blessed.
